    We’re Going Mock Drafting! The Baseball Mock Draft To End All Mock Drafts

    We love Mock Drafts. We love them because they make us laugh. So called experts spend countless hours sifting through scouting reports and game film and try to match these kids with team needs. They are immensely popular in football and basketball but have recently began to gain steam in […]

    Devil Rays 5, Royals 1. Let’s see if we can make it three for three… On two previous occasions we have been critical of headlines found on devilrays.com. On both occasions, the title of the article was subsequently changed. On the first occasion, the title was factually wrong and on […]

    Royals 9, Devil Rays 4.Only Edwin Jackson could throw up a stinker and make the Kansas City Royals look like the ’75 Reds. After Saturday’s loss, Edwin Jackson is now 0-7 in 10 starts and has not won a game in 33 appearances since being acquired from the Dodgers. His […]

    Royals 4, Devil Rays 1. Only the Rays could throw up a stinker and make Brian Bannister look like Johan Santana. The Devil Rays finally made changes to the rotation that we all have patiently waited for. OK, maybe we weren’t very patient at times. Jae Seo has been designated […]

    Devil Rays (off day) Quick side note: You know what is great about yesterday’s off-day? At least one more day of people talking about how the Yankees are in last place tied with the Devil Rays. It is like informing a guy that his wife cheated on him with 5 […]

    Ottawa 4, Durham 3. Huh? Andy Sonnanstine lost? That’s weird. Sonny got knocked around for 10 hits and 4 runs in 6 innings. He surrendered 2 home runs. We don’t mean to pile on Sonnanstine after one bad outing, because it is rare, but this is what we need to […]

    Durham 11, Ottawa 3. Two hits and two wild pitches led to a run in the first inning, but Jeff Niemann settled down and did not allow a run over the next 4 frames. Still, while Niemann was good, he was not dominating. He failed to record a 1-2-3 inning […]
